Workers and employees make up the core of any operation, whether it’s PMETs, housekeepers or construction workers. And when job opportunities are abundant the rate of employee turnover increases proportionately as well, and is reflected by high rates of resignations and recruitment.

While labour turnover works two ways it never helps when an employee resigns and leaves unexpectedly. It is inevitable that companies face employee resignations from time-to-time, or in the worst case scenarios, spates of resignations.

Regardless, having an important employee leave at an inopportune time not only hurts company operations in the short-run but will have long-term ramifications as well. On the domestic side: think of how depressive it would be to return to a messy and unhealthy home after a long day at work.

Here’s how a foreign worker agency can help you solve these issues:
